Excellence is the keyword we are expecting from all our partners in all aspects of interacting with a Go! Running Tours guest. All tour providers on the Go! Running Tours are committed to our tour standards.
You should always feel confident that you are able to guide a running tour. Keeping your availability updated increases you possibilities of receiving bookings that you can accommodate.

COMMITMENT TO RESERVATIONS
A running tour is an activity that guests plan their day around and that they are looking forward to. Whether they are travelling on business or leisure a running tour is a treat in their travels and for many people also much needed exercise.
- If a reservation should change (meeting point, guide, start time etc.), the guest has to be informed immediately. If a tour has to be cancelled, let the guest (and us) know immediately.
- Honour reservations even if other tour bookings are made for the same time.
PLEASE NOTE: Go! Running Tours take “no shows” very seriously and these can be penalized accordingly to our tour provider penalty policy which can be found in our cooperation agreement.
High customer satisfaction is a direct result of meeting expectations. In order to do so, accuracy in listings, communication and circumstances is paramount.
- The tour description, distance, provided meeting point and extras should match the tour the guest booked. It is your responsibility that the tour content featured on the Go! Running Tours platform is correct and up to date.
- The guide has to arrive on time at the agreed start time at the meeting point.
- Be honest about unexpected features such as high elevation, stairs, high temperatures during summer days, and make sure that you assist your guest to overcome these.
Excellent experiences in each of our destinations is the founding pillars for Go! Running Tours and vital for the continued growth of our customer base. We know that we have a high level of repeat business across destinations and if we all provide high quality running tours it will rub off on everybody else in the network.
